The Blackman Community Club (BCC) was established in 1947 and is one of the oldest known organizations in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  The club meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.  Currently the BCC provides two scholarship a year to a graduating senior; one who attends Blackman High School and the other who attends Stewarts Creek High School.

It all began when Blackman’s home demonstration club, now known as the Family Community Education Club (FCE), decided the community needed a regular meeting place.  So the community got together and started the Blackman Barbeque, which celebrated its 60th year in 2009, to raise the funds needed to build the community club.  After the club was built  it quickly became a gathering place for the community and helped it stay close-knit for so many years.  The club is still the home of the FCE and a frequent site for family reunions and community events.  And the Blackman Barbeque still benefits the community club and is possibly Rutherford County’s oldest annual event.
